abuse apologist defends amanda bynes b/c they’re both being slandered on the internet ;_____;

I realize making digs at this person on my blog is probably really immature but I’ve been the bigger person with them for like, over a year now, I’m allowed some shadenfreude

OH MY GOD JILL SERIOUSLY DOESN’T KNOW WHY EVERYONE IS HORRIFIED AND PISSED THAT SHE TRIED TO GET HER WHITE DAUGHTER CAST AS ROSA FUCKING PARKS

WHHHHHHHHH HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS

I said I wasn’t gonna get on tonight, but the onion really just called Quvenzhane a “cunt”. Like deadass.

notcayleb:

killing this before it spreads, it was sarcasm

Or so because it’s sarcasm that gives them the right to call a NINE YEAR OLD a cunt? Is that what you’re saying? Lemme tell you something. I know it’s “satire” and I DON”T GIVE A FUCK. This child is a baby and she got called a cunt, and not only did she get called a cunt, people stay mispronouncing her name like it’s so fucking hard, and Seth Macfloplane makes a twisted ass joke about her. And what? AND WHAT? I’m supposed to just chill and be like “It’s sarcasm so that makes it okay”? Get the fuck outta here. 

jesus christ

"ehnnnn it was sarcasm ehnnnnn"

SHE’S FUCKING NINE

GODDAMN FUCKING GROWN-ASS ADULTS CAN’T EVEN LET HER HAVE A NOMINATION WITHOUT MAKING HER THE BUTT OF EVER RACIST, MISOGYNIST JOKE ALL NIGHT

sorry not sorry but the Onion is a staff of paid, trained, fucking GROWN UP PROFESSIONALS, and Quvenzhane is a nine year old little girl, they should have fucking known better, Seth Macdoucheface should have known better, Jennifer Lawrence’s fans should know better than to be openly laughing about her victory over a little girl (in a movie written by a fucking pedophile), everyone on the entire planet should know better, I’M MAD!!!!!!!!!

That’s right. I don’t want to draw people of colour. Why? I don’t find them aesthetically pleasing. And no, that doesn’t make me racist. I have nothing against people of colour. I don’t have a problem with them. Some of my best friends are people of colour, and I don’t think any less of them for that.
I just don’t find poc attractive. Kinda like I don’t find big noses or buck teeth attractive. Or curly hair, or bushy eyebrows, or super thin lips, or certain face shapes. Or a lot of Freckles. Or really huge butts. Or ginormous boobs.
I like to draw things that I find attractive or interesting, so that’s what I’ll draw. If it doesn’t fit into what I think is attractive or interesting, I tend not to draw it.
And I don’t have to. So all you “BAH YOU DON’T DRAW POC! YOU RACIST!” people need to stfu. People can draw whatever the fuck they want, and you can’t force them to draw something they don’t want to. They might be racist, they might not. But it doesn’t matter. We all have free will.

so obviously this person is a massive white supremacist, but the kicker is that all their art is shitty, off-model reproductions of anime characters
like, where do you think the manga and anime whose styles you are so blatantly ripping off come from
all your illustration is done by (badly) mimicking styles that were developed, mastered, and popularized by people of colour, and then you turn around and insult those same artists who created the art form you’re into by saying that people of colour are too ugly for you to draw?
this is honestly why I don’t say that everyone should make art. Some people should just not make art.

Allow me to address some pet peeves, with pictures

"Women don’t know anything about comics because women don’t read comics!"

oh

ok

then.

"Women don’t appreciate mainstream/superhero comics, they only read manga and indie books!"

uh

huh.

"Misogyny and racism, etc, are just part of the medium/culture of comics, stop complaining about it!"

how about

no.

"The reason women, PoC, etc are so poorly represented in comics is because they don’t make any significant contributions to the medium!"

shut

the fuck

up.

"Comics aren’t a political medium."

I don’t

really

think so.

"Superhero comics are the only kinds of comics that make money/that anyone cares about."

oh my god

just

stop

talking

I probably shouldn’t expect better of people at this point but I really expected better of Joey Comeau.
edit: and wow how stupid do i feel for that, holy shit.

My dad was taken by Immigration and they could sent him back any day now! He won’t be able to come back for 10 years and he hasn’t done anything wrong. He’s been living here for 20 years, always paying taxes, and helped many families start lives in America. We need your help.

PLEASE REBLOG!

"Not being racist is not some default starting position. You don’t simply get to say you’re not a racist; not being racist — or a sexist or a homophobe — is a constant, arduous process of unlearning, of being uncomfortable, of eating crow and being humbled and re-evaluating. It’s probably hard to start that process if you’ve been told that every thought you have is golden and should be given voice, and that people who are offended by what you say are hypersensitive simpletons."

"Their own neighborhood"

readnfight:

If poor urban people of color rioted in the areas they live in, in cities in the US, in a serious huge way, what fraction of property destroyed would be their own? What fraction of people rioting would be destroying property of their own, their friends and families, people they’d ever even met? A tenth? A hundredth? What must that look like in the UK right now—whose property is being destroyed?

I’m wondering this because of the argument that people are destroying “their own neighborhood,” which has always come off to me as being steeped in a middle-class misunderstanding of other people’s poverty. Who owns the house they live in? In New Haven, almost all the houses in the POC neighborhoods are subdivided to be rented as separate floors. I literally know 3 couples in the city who own the house they live in; 2 of those couples are either my past or present landlords. If my block rioted, for the most part we would not be destroying our own property.

Are the riots destroying more than the police do? (They’re the only ones within this story who have killed someone.) Are they destroying more than unemployment and hunger do? Are they destroying more than developers would; are they doing the developers’ work for them anyway? What about the community being destroyed when people are evicted, when people hide out or move away because of racism or xenophobia, when people are convicted of crimes and locked up under a penal system built on oppression, when people are taught collective self-loathing in school, when people are forbidden to speak their own languages?

And what does that mean, “their own neighborhood?” What does ownership of the place you live mean, if you don’t even have the money or skin color to own it? What does ownership mean if you live in public housing and know that, any day now, the city can sign it over to real estate holders who will tear it down and build condos with no remorse? What does ownership mean when there is no longer a place to get sufficiently healthy food in your neighborhood, or there is but the only people who shop there come from other parts of town, or there is but only because the white people moving in aren’t being ignored the way your family was for generations?

How can you force ownership, from afar, onto communities that have been made this deeply alienated from where they are and how they relate to the people and places around them, if they have never before been allowed or encouraged to own anything, property or otherwise?

If you loot a shoe store of a company run by a white man overseas that makes billions of dollars, that cuts costs by using sweatshop labor of people of color and then marketing them back to a different demographic of people of color; if you steal a pair of pants from a clothing store that won’t hire people of color from the neighborhood and follows them around the store when they come in; if you break the window of a multi-billion dollar fast food chain restaurant whose $1 meals are, on a bad day, all you have money and time to feed your kids, knowing that the food you are feeding them is damn near toxic but having no alternatives; are you doing anything to your real community? Will you ever meet the people who actually own all of that?

I wasn’t going to repost anything else about the riots, but then this person wrote this and pretty much articulated everything about the discourse going on around this that I wanted to say. This is important. Please read it.
